The Auschwitz Museum has condemned Amazon for selling Auschwitz-themed Christmas decorations and novelty bottle openers.

Officials from the museum, which preserves the site of the former German Nazi Auschwitz concentration and extermination camp, said the products were 'disrespectful' and called on the online retail giant to remove them from sale.

Items include star and bell-shaped Christmas tree baubles featuring photographs of the death camp.
